Not fluffy love. Not sentimental love, but...
…love like a freight train rolling over me
…love like a hard rain pounding on the windshield I can hardly see*
Wide eyed people are astonished easily. They are awake and aware. They have not lost their sense of wonder. They are curious and willing to ask questions without fear; questions that could easily be dismissed as childish, naive, or obvious.
I want to wake up each morning “wide eyed” and I need “wide eyed” people to do life with so I can learn to love those dearest to me, love my neighbor, and maybe even love my “enemy” with "love like a freight train.”
A “wide eyed” Christianity would help me and my “wide eyed” compatriots with learning to "love like a freight train." Wide eyed Christianity is awake and aware of all that is going on in the name of God - the good, the bad and the ugly.
Stay tuned for part two, Big Tent Christianity.
